Excel excitement ensues
The OnLive desktop app first launched in January, offering iPad users remote access to a full version of Windows 7, including Microsoft Office.
Android tablet users can now join the Office party, "enjoying" Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, as well as Adobe Reader.
The service also promises cloud-enhanced web speeds of up to a gigabit, producing a cloud-accelerated connection that slashes page-loading and streaming speeds regardless of home Wi-Fi speeds.
Free basic service
The OnLive Desktop app is available now from the US Android Market for free, and there are a number of versions to suit your budget.
Desktop Standard is free, Desktop Plus is $4.99/month and Desktop Pro is coming soon at $9.99 along with 50GB of cloud storage. There will also be an Enterprise version for big businesses.
OnLive hasn't yet released details of when we'll see a UK offering, though we imagine it can't be far off.
